The France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF) acts to promote and develop Franco-Canadian scientific and academic exchanges of excellence in every field of study, from the “hard” sciences to human and social sciences.
It is designed to support new collaborative scientific efforts involving young researchers.
The FCRF was created in 2000 through an agreement between the Embassy of France in Canada and a consortium of 16 Canadian universities, both English and French speaking, expanded today to 19 universities and the company Total .
The Fund is joinly chaired by Ms. Mona Nemer, Vice President, Research, at the University of Ottawa, and Mr. Jacques Samarut, President of the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon.
Please find the 2014 New Scientific Collaboration Support Program guidelines and the application form below.
This program provides funding for new scientific collaboration between French and Canadian research teams. The grants available range in value from $8,000 to $15,000, depending on the requirements presented by project managers. It may be possible to obtain additional funding beyond FCRF funds.
